It's a vegetable, you know...it is! It's a bean! :) <br /><br />Along that note, I recently lost my source of income and direct sales was not on my radar whatsoever, but a friend introduced me to Dove Chocolate Discoveries, you know the Dove Chocolate company... What better way to make money and have fun than doing CHOCOLATE TASTING PARTIES?! Now I have a full calendar and making great money! All because of chocolate. I love what I do :) <br /><br />I also LOVE love love to sing, and help others acheive their dreams in the Performing Arts Industry, actors, singers, models, bands...
